Agricultural Equipment Accidents:
Agricultural equipment is heavy and prone to defects. If you’ve been on the receiving end of agricultural equipment accidents, it’s likely that you’ll be able to successfully receive compensation. Contact us to learn how!
Asbestos / Mesothelioma:
Now that the dangers of the asbestos / mesothelioma relationship is fully understood by medical practitioners and judges, you should seriously consider pursuing compensation if you’ve been afflicted by this disease. While there may be no cure for mesothelioma, we can at least help you receive compensation for your wrongful pain and suffering.
Construction Site Accident:
With steel beams flying around, heavy equipment in use, and power tools everywhere, construction site accidents are a common workplace injury. If you’ve been injured on a construction site, you have the option of seeking injury compensation. Contact us for a free consultation!
If you’re an electrician or line worker, electrocution injuries can be a real danger! Get in touch with our legal team today if you feel you’ve received an electrocution injury due to employer negligence.
Patients aren’t the only people who can become injured at hospitals. Nurses, doctors, and hospital staff can also receive wrongful hospital injuries, and legal recourse is available to anyone who has received a hospital injury that was the fault of the hospital administration.
Road Paving Injuries:
Road paving is a physically demanding job, and it involves many different kinds of heavy equipment. If you have sustained road paving injuries and you believe that these injuries occurred because of faulty equipment or employer negligence, contact us right away!
Toxic Mold / Sick Building Syndrome:
If you’ve worked in sub-par conditions, or if you’ve experienced a health crisis after occupying a building, it’s possible you’ve been exposed to toxic mold or sick building syndrome (SBS). If your employer or landlord has allowed you to work or live in conditions that are patently unsafe, you may have a case that you can bring before a judge. Get in touch with our qualified attorneys to take the first steps!
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN BE WRONGED IN THE WORKPLACE
Not all types of workplace injury involve visits to the hospital. Some types of injury may infringe on your personal sovereignty, and others may involve wrongful impositions on your ability to work, including:
When a superior takes advantage of a position of power, or a coworker solicits sex in a way that isn’t reciprocated, it can make you feel unsafe and/or make your work environment so uncomfortable that it severely affects your ability to do your job. If you feel like you’ve been sexually harassed in the workplace, we can help you get compensated!
If you’ve been fired for reasons other than your job performance, it’s likely that you’ll be able to receive compensation. Wrongful terminations have no place in an ethical workplace, and judges tend to understand that fact. Our attorneys will advocate for your rights to receive compensation!
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Claims:
In addition to litigating your case in court, work injury attorneys can also help you file EEOC claims if you feel you’ve been discriminated against in the workplace for reasons of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability.
Our work injury lawyers can advocate for you if workplace fairness issues have taken place during your tenure at a business. In many cases, compensation is available to those who have received unfair treatment in their place of work.
YOU DESERVE TO BE COMPENSATED!
Never forget that it’s your right to be compensated for any injuries you sustain in the workplace. In many cases, in addition to being subjected to physical and psychological pain, workplace injuries can rob you of your livelihood, which can make you feel powerless or like you’ll never be whole again. No matter how seemingly slight your injury or mistreatment, our expert workplace injury attorneys are standing by to present your legal options and empower you with the compensation you deserve.

WHY DO ACCIDENTS HAPPEN IN THE WORKPLACE?
There can be many reasons the employer or the proprietor of the business is at fault, including:
- Failure to properly train employees
- Failure to maintain a safe working environment
- Failure to adequately supervise employees
- Failure to provide adequate safety equipment
However, there are also situations where the employee is at least partially at fault. This “shared fault” scenario is one of the main reasons why it’s so essential that you team up with a qualified attorney that is dedicated to your cause and will represent you with expertise and intelligence.
